What is Your Favorite Lesser Known Disney Movie
 
What is you favorite lesser known Disney movie, either animated or not?

I think mine is Tuck Everlasting. I feel like it's just such a nice movie to watch.

Anyone else have a favorite?

Probably The Even Stevens Movie. Strangely enough, we never really watched the TV show but we absolutely love the movie. :laughing:

And the original Parent Trap - it's an all-around great family movie and one of the best of the live-action classics IMO. The camping scene is hysterical!

Newsies!

I'm pretty sure that all of the people I know who know about this movie only know about it because I told them about it and/or made them watch it and/or listen to the soundtrack.

Both me and my dad love the lesser known sci-fi film "Flight of the Navigator" , one day at the studios we saw the ship from the film and started talking about it and the film.

Flight of the Navigator is also one of my favs.

The Three Lives of Thomasina. When I was a year old, I got a stuffed cat that at some point was named after the cat in the movie, Thomasina. I still have her--she was my absolute favorite plaything as a child.

The World's Greatest Athlete with Jan Michael Vincent, Tim Conway and John Amos. The Disney Channel showed this movie often in the mid-1980's and I loved it! I just added it to my queue on Netflix.

Love this one too!!! Ordered it from Amazon about 6 months ago, and the kids love it. I remember seeing this on television as a child.

That's my favorite too. I watched it in journalism class and a week later I bought the DVD and Soundtrack! :goodvibes

I really liked "Something Wicked This Way Comes" when I was younger.

When I was little I liked the tv movies Mr Boogedy and Bride of Boogedy. I've looked everywhere, but I can never find them on VHS. I also like the Tower of Terror movie. It's cheesy, but I always have to watch it before I go to the park. popcorn::

That would have to be my second favorite lesser known Disney movie! I rent it every year around Halloween.

Not sure how well it qualifies under the category of "lesser-known," but I'm something of an evangelist for The Emperor's New Groove. I don't think the company knew how to market the movie, but it might be the funniest Disney animated feature ever made. I've never shown it to anyone who didn't love it afterward, nor have any of them ever failed to scratch their heads and wonder how it slipped past them in theaters and why it wasn't a bigger hit.
